9th street is home to the Italian Market, many Mexican-owned businesses, some famous cheesesteak restaurants, and Southwark School, where I work. Last Sunday, it was also the location of a huge party to celebrate Mexican Independence Day and Latino Heritage Month. There was music, dancing, food and speeches from community members. Puentes won an award for working in the community. Here you can see a video of the award ceremony and also a photo!
